    Squeaky Clutch Is Killing ME!!!

    Hey guys! So I just recently replaced my motor. Before I did the swap my clutch would always squeak when pushing in the pedal. The sound was not coming from the pedal itself, so I figured it was just the pressure plate creaking etc..
    Once I replaced the motor, I also installed a new throwout bearing, Clutch, Pressure Plate, and Flywheel. Once I did that, the squeak was gone for about a week.
    Now the annoying sound has returned and I am stumped as to where it is coming from. I checked the Slave Cylinder and the clutch for and it all seems to be quiet. I just can't stand how obnoxious it is. Plus, it makes people stare in a non good way lol.
    Any advice would be great!
    Thanks,
    Matt.

    Have you tried spraying some lube on the pivot shaft of the clutch hanger to see if that shuts it up.
    Sound travels to & from weird places in cars.

    YES! And it still squeaks. I have no idea what it could be.

    Next point to attack would be to get some lube inside the cable, if that fails move on down the line until you get to the newly installed parts.
    I am no mechanic but the process of elimination must get to the squeak sooner than later.

    You need to be more specific.
    If you expect us to diagnose this we need more specific information. I.e. What type of squeak is it? Is it the squeak of a rotating part (like the sound a loose belt makes) or a creak of a non rotating part (like a rusty hinge)
    Does the sound continue when the clutch petal is at the same location of the stroke, or is it stop making the noise when the petal is stagnant?
    Is it at any vehicle and engine speed?
    Is it at the top of the pedal stroke or the bottom?


    And yes it could be a pilot bearing I kinda doubt it.. pressing the clutch pedal seperates the transmission and engine so they are free to spin at different speeds. But the noise would be congruent with the engines speed. However I find it very hard to believe someone could mistake a pilotbearing for a clutch pedal squeak.
    We need more info.
    No, no ,no I'm not insulting you, I'm describing you!

    The squeak is more of a higher pitch. Almost like opening a creaky door. It only happens when I push in the clutch pedal and like I stated before, it is not coming from the pedal itself. No, it does not matter what speed I'm going or if I'm in neutral rolling or at a complete stop. Sometimes it goes away for a few days, and then eventually comes back.
    Definitely not the pilot bearing. I'm just unsure of what exactly it is. Like stated before, I checked the clutch fork and listened to the slave cylinder and those are the only two things other than the pressure plate or throwout bearing I could think of that were a possibility.

    OK does it stop making noise when the pedal stops moving, or does it make noise anytime the pedal is pushed in?
    If its continues to make noise when the pedal isn't in motion I would say its most definitely a throw out bearing.

    On the other hand if the creaking door sound only happens when the pedal is in motion, went away for a week after you changed your clutch and came back, and a creaking sound, it sounds like this little guy needs some heavy duty grease..
